Kantha Wilma Bracelet
Kantha Wilma Bracelet, featuring colourful fabric beads made from recycled Kantha textiles, then interspersed with metallic gold beads. They look great worn singly, or stacked and layered with our other Kantha bracelet styles. Measures ¾” wide; stretches to fit most wrists. Colours and patterns will vary. Handmade by low-income women artisans in India, who are improving their lives through their work in a self-help group.
Kantha quilts are a traditional textile found in abundance in India. They are made from layers of cotton saris, sewn together with a distinctive, allover running stitch. Artisans transform the fabric scraps into beads for jewelry, which provides new life to a textile that is often discarded. Each Kantha bead has a base made of wood, carved out of scraps gathered from a local furniture factory.
